Default Area Description

Union Wildlife Management area is located in Union Parish, approximately four miles west of Marion. Access is by Louisiana Highways 549 and 551, plus Concord Road. Union is 11,192 acres in size and is leased from Plum Creek Timber Company. Topography of the area is primarily rolling hills interlaced with several creeks and intermittent streams. Major creeks are Big Cane, Tick, and Meridian. Elevations range from 110 to 240 feet above mean sea level.

The forest cover is dominated by loblolly pine mixed, in some stands, with southern red oak, white oak, hickory, post oak, sweetgum, shortleaf pine, elm, and blackgum. Cherrybark oak, Arkansas oak, cow oak, and red maple are present. Beech and water oak occur, especially along the streams.

Crown closure varies with the age of managed pine timber stands, much of the area having a brushy understory. Common woody understory plants include American beautyberry, Japanese honeysuckle, yellow jessamine, greenbrier, sumac, American holly, flowering dogwood, hawthorn, persimmon, grape, arrowwood, huckleberry, salt bush, black cherry, American elder, blackberry, and poison ivy.

Game species available for hunting include deer, squirrel, rabbit, quail, dove, woodcock, and to a limited extent, waterfowl. A liberal either-sex deer season has been conducted for the past 35 years with excellent results. A lottery hunt for wild turkey is held annually. Trapping is permitted for raccoon, opossum, fox, mink, beaver, coyote, and bobcat.

A primitive camping area is provided on the east side of the WMA.

Additional information may be obtained from the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries, 368 CenturyTel Drive, Monroe, Louisiana 71203. Phone (318) 343-4044.

Hate to have to post this but thought it should be here for anyone new to the site or looking into hunting public land in Louisiana. This below is what has replaced the web page description for Union WMA on WLF website. I expect this will eventually go by the wayside and any reference to Union WMA will eventually be pulled from WMA page on WLF website.

Effective July 1, 2015, the property known as Union Wildlife Management Area (WMA) will no longer be part of the department’s WMA program and will no longer be available for public use. In north Louisiana, optional state wildlife management areas available for public outdoor recreation include Bayou Pierre, Bayou Macon, Big Colewa Bayou, Bodcau , Jackson-Bienville, Loggy Bayou, Russell Sage and Soda Lake. For more information on these and other WMA's managed by the Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries, go to http://www.wlf.state.la.us/wma .

That's too bad. Used to go hunting there in the 70's and 80's with my dad. Killed my first Louisiana deer there.
